Louise Graham studied physiology at University College London. She was awarded a PhD in clinical pharmacology. Post-doctoral research followed at the Royal Postgraduate Medical School - Hammersmith Hospital, and the Charing Cross Hospital oncology department.
After a stint writing medical film scripts, she wrote two books – A Good Start – healthy eating in the first five years (Penguin Books) and George’s First Year (Peter Halban).
She trained as a complementary therapist and practises Inner Dialogue – a non-verbal system that assists in the unfolding of the narrative that led to the client’s dilemma, state or illness.
After many years of yo-yo dieting and gradually increasing weight, she decided to use her research skills to develop a new diet that needs minimal will power and avoids the rebound weight gain common to faddy short-term diets.
